Stress can be a deadly partner when working toward any hard and long goal -- a terminal illness, unexpected misfortune, fighting an enemy, a sudden unexpected disaster.  Scripture talks about men's hearts failing them during terrible events...heart attacks, strokes, migraines, depression, suicides, fractured families, road rage, domestic violence... whatever severe evil or emotional devastation you can name, is a result or the origin of stress in our lives.  Endurance is a quality that all people need, but not all have.  It is learning how to best "run the race" and make it to a successful end.  Endurance is the quality that gives you the tools to, in Sir Winston Churchill's words, "Never, never, never give up!"
